Here is John's 4 club set up.

If I ever hit my 7-iron 195, let along INTO A BREEZE, I will take off my shirt, carefully wrap the club in it, and carry it all the way back to my car even if I am on the hole farthest from the par

I switch the position of my Driver/3W/Hybrid with wedges/putter when switching between carrying and using a push cart so the toe hang of the irons doesn't bang on the graphite shafts.

I can't hit any club longer than a 5 iron so my bag is light and easy to organize.

Top tier - empty
Second tier - putter
Third tier - Left, 5. Right, 6 & 7.
Bottom tier - Left, four wedges. Right, 8 & 9

My Sun Mountain C-130 bag is organized as follows:
Top Tier: Driver, 3W, 5W
Second Tier: 4h, 10' Ball Retriever
Third Tier: 5i - 8i
Bottom Tier: 9i, PW, SW

The putter has its own spot in the front of the bag.

My Sun Mountain C-130 bag is organized as follows:

That C130 has individual dividers like my Sun Mountain SCB (Speed Cart Bag). I always start the round off like this... 3H/DR/3W 4i/5i/6i/7i 8i/9i/PW/GW SW/open/GW with the putter in the well. During the round, if I'm riding, all hell breaks loose when I take take out 3 or 4 clubs and my putter to walk over to my ball. When I return, it anyone's guess where the clubs will wind up. I do try to keep them close to their original row When I'm walking using the speed cart, I have to shift all the clubs because the bag fits in the cart in the opposite direction. That's what I like about the bag...the longer clubs are always furthest from me.

Thanks, everybody. Pretty cool (and surprising) to see the results of the poll. I'm always catching flack from my foursome for this, so now I can point out that they are the minority!

Not only would they appear to be the minority, but they are contributing to slow play.

Let's say it takes an extra 10-15 seconds to find a club everytime they go looking through their bag. Let's say they shoot 94 (we'll not count half of their 36 putts, grabbing putter only once per hole) so 76 trips to the bag looking for clubs. That's 12 to 19 minutes extra per round.

I'm currently using a MacGregor cart bag with six way divider (3 full length) and divide this way when looking from above, behind the cart:

Top Left: D, 3W,
Top Right: 3h, 4h, 5W
Middle Left: 4i, 5i, 6i
Middle Right: 7i, 8i, 9i
Lower Left: LW, PW
Lower Right: Putter, SW

Too many clubs. I alternate my 5W and 4h since I rarely use either and get the same result from both (of course it's dependent on the lie). I always put my clubs into the divider they came from.

The real question is, how many of you put the covers back on your clubs when you put them in the bag after each shot? How about just the driver and/or wood covers each time? Putter?

I can be somewhat anal with my club organization. All clubs have a place, and a place for every club. They all go back in order. That way, I know exactly where to grab for each club. My driver, 3W 5W and hybrid all live together in the big comartment on top, then the 4, 5 and 6 in a compartment, then 7, 8 and 9. All 4 wedges (PW, 52 gap, 56 sand and 60 lob) all live together, and Mr. putter gets his own place.

Yeah, I know that's too many clubs, but Until I get my tour card, I'm not really concerned about it.

And yes, the woods all have headcovers that go back on after each shot, and the putter headcover does the same.

Ignoring the 14 club limit??? How can you live with your cheating self???

My bag has 5 dividers. When I put my clubs in there I was just putting them in there. Some of you guys scare me with the way you've set up your bag. My clubs do however go in the same holes but not always in the same order.

Here's how I have it set up:
Top: 3-wood, 5-wood (The Judge) although I hit it like a court jester, and 3 iron
Middle Right: 4-6 iron
Middle Left: 7-9 iron
Bottom Right: S-wedge, Alien wedge
Bottom Left: P-wedge, Putter

All my clubs have covers on them also except for the P-wedge and the Alien wedge. The one time I let me sister caddie for me she lost the cover for the P-wedge.

Top: Driver, 3 Wood and Putter
Middle Left: 3, 4 and 5 Irons
Middle Right: 6, 7 and 8 irons
Bottom: 9 iron PW and 56º

I'm thinking about getting a 2 iron and a 60º. The 2i will go to the top and the 60º will go to the bottom

My quandry is something altogather different... I have a bag with 14 holes... I also have a putter tube. My Ping Craz-e G2 loves the tube... he's a bit of a loner and likes the solitude. This leaves an empty space in wedge row. I will NOT carry a ball retreiver... too amatuer. My ubrella has its own holder. I also will NOT carry over 14 clubs... I'm a rule follower. So what should I do with this extra slot.

Also, don't think I ride carts just because I have a large 14 divider bag... I actually walk with my nice little bagboy push cart about 75% of the time.

    • I’ve done 54 on the same course a couple of times.   Always cart because they weren’t easily walkable.  I was able to keep my focus because my third round of the day was the best.     lot of weekends in my 20s, in walked and carried my bag for 36 each day.
    • I googled the reason for it and it also mentions that you also can’t change ball color as well for an advantage, but I’m having trouble coming up with something where the ball color changing during a round would be some type of advantage.   In other words, you can’t even use the exact same ball model with different colors in a round, anyone come up with changing ball color during the round somehow would help?
    • Because playing with a different ball may not be consecutive. Maybe someone plays a higher spin ball on par threes. Or a lower spin ball on par fives. 15 clubs is consecutive.
    • Thanks for that. But why a 2 strokes penalty per hole for unintentionally playing the wrong type of ball, until the mistake is discovered and rectified, while at the same time the penalty for unintentionally playing with too many clubs is capped at 2 strokes penalty for 2 holes maximum (only). What is different between those two, and how does that make any sense? I agree that one is a general rule applying to all golfers and the other is a local rule applying to high level competitions only. Is that it?
    • Slightly off-topic, kind of related to NLU on Torrey, but you can watch a course flyover, you can play it many times on a video game, you can watch it on tv, but it's just not the same as actually playing it. Being Captain Obvious here, I know.
